Also Collected E-waste with active support of our students.E-waste collected was sent to "SWACH PUNE SEVA SAHAKARI LTD."
We introduce the Microsoft Windows office package (MS Word, MS Excel, MS Power point, and MS Access) to the students. We mainly introduce how to use effectively MS Excel for representation of statistical data and to use various statistical tools for data Analysis.
We teach R–Software to the students of S.Y.B.Sc. Class. The response of the students is good and the output is significantly better among the students who attend this training session.
The department has taken initiative in conducting a course on the most advanced technique of accessing information. Mainly for the students of S.Y.B.Sc we introduce the concept of internet, and how to use internet to access the exact information in Statistics that we are interested in. We received a strong positive feedback from the students as it helped our students to explore their knowledge and use it effectively to make presentations in seminar and science exhibitions.
In order to build the confidence level of students in making presentations, communication and to make them aware of statistical tools applied in different fields; Student’s Seminar is conducted every year by Department of Statistics. This activity is conducted for Second year BSc students.Students make presentation on different topics of Statistics Subject using power point presentation.
